About the Property

Custom home with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths on Lake Pontchartrain

Feel yourself relax as you spend time enjoying lake and marsh views from our two porches. Nap in the hammocks in the breezeway under the house. Fish off the pier under our special green fishing lights. Boating, jet skiing, water skiing, swimming, crabbing will entertain you. Cook your meals on the grill or boil crabs and shrimp in the pot and burner provided. Watch beautiful sunsets over the lake and marsh with a drink and say 'another beautiful day in paradise!'
